Kodak DCS460


I owned one of these for a few months during the middle of 2009 - I bought it purely out of historical interest. Back when it was new, in about 1995, it sold for $30,000 and had the highest resolution of any portable one-shot digital SLR. Nowadays the...

In 1995 it must have been extraordinary. Most digital cameras were toy-like compacts that shot at VGA or SVGA resolution; the DCS 460's 3060x2040 resolution wasn't topped until the early 2000s (by the Canon D60, as far as I can tell) ; BUT I found that...

It's amazing how far we've come since 1995. This camera was state of the art back then. I checked out some image samples on the net and I couldn't believe how bad they were. A modern $100 compact would blow it away.

You know I forgot that I had written this review so long ago. I still shoot with a KODAK as of Oct of 2007, but the camera is a SLRn. The 460 files processed today still look pretty good. Very sharp.........of course the camera is slow and eats...

Those things are complicated and pricey, like a British sportscar need a lot of love to work well. Any experiment with CF cards and adapters is doomed 'per se' you need to touch the Callunas, wiff it, lick it, love it, use it. With Calluna Disks works...

None, don't god problems, they're tasty features

I've been using the DCS 460 for just over a year and while (even by 2006 standards) it is old tech. it consistantly produces exceptional images and will compete with the current Nikon 12+MP cameras. No I did not pay $30,000 a body for these, like some....

The main problem with using the DCS 460 is knowing how and when to use the "click balance" and taking very accurate exposure readings with a calibrated handheld meter. From my experience CF cards do not work and there is no way that I know of to...

This is the first digital camera opened to the market, and is by kodak Company, very very good production at that time. Great!!!

Of course, if compare with nowadays ; this camera should have to put in the drawer or in the museum

Picked this up from Kodak when they were clearing them out. For the money, 2500 USD, it was a bargain. I have used it about 2 years now with few problems. I have 23x30's around my studio that can attest to the quality. It is slow to write to the card...

Occasionally lose an image, might be a defective card. The battery sucks

I have used Kodak DCS420, DCS315, and Nikon CP995, 990. Kodak DCS460 still stands as my choice. I do a lot of people photos and the fact this digital camera acts fast and gives 1.3 focal length factor is a beautiful neccessity. Some people have voiced...

Now I have to say: can someone make this a bit smaller and light weight? For a street shooter like me, the camera's size scares away a lot of people and it makes my arm sore after a day carrying it around

6.2 million large pixels with 1.25 lens factor.... what else is there to say. Beautiful, detailed files that scale up extremely well. Nikon optics and metering... Kodak/NASA research. Well worth the investment of time to make these files sing!

Keep the battery charged

If you can get a good deal on this camera its worth having. Technology is a bit old now but still very usable. Will work best with portraits and product. I would not recommend for landscape. I've yet to see one at the price given at this site ...
